As long as you do not exceed 2 VMs, you should be fine.

Yes, but the Physical instance of the OS must be only running the Hyper-V role.  You would also need CALs for each device connecting to either of the VMs.

Your license is fine as Standard covers host plus 2 VMs.

As far as provisioning and setting up the host may I suggest my E-E Article: Some Hyper-V Hardware and Software Best Practices.
